Biography

Hank has had the opportunity to sing in numerous "honky tonks". In fact, he's performed in "far too many to name." He's performed at several famous venues such as The Palomino in Los Angeles, California; Gilley's in Houston, Texas; and places closer to his Georgia home like Miss Kitty's in Marietta and Mama's Country Showcase in Atlanta. While performing at Mama's he also had the opportunity to be the opening act for many of country's current stars such as Joe Diffie, Tim McGraw, Billy Dean, Kenny Chesney, Shenandoah, Little Texas, Toby Keith, Tracy Byrd, Confederate Railroad, Chris Ledoux, and many others.
Hank's greatest musical influences include Willie Nelson, Garth Brooks, George Strait, Merle Haggard, and the Eagles. Unlike some of the younger up-and-coming stars, he has lived the songs he sings, and brings a certain gritty reality to them.-
